“What do you mean I can’t go with him?”“We appreciate you bringing him in, sir, but you’re an elf.” The doctor looked down his nose at Wimer Aslix. It took all of his self-control not to throw the doctor across the room.“He’s my friend.”“A wolf would not be friends with an elf. Please wait outside, if you must.”“This is bullshit,” Wimer Aslix snapped and turned around.He left the emergency room and went outside. He needed comfort and he needed … something. He touched the mental link to Bosy.We’ll be there soon.They won’t let me in to see him. They … they won’t …It’s okay, darling. We’ll be there soon.I’m a fucking elf so they won’t let me in to see him. I—Ciel Karhillaz has already called Lee Sooman, and he’s throwing a fit. Just … I’ll be there in five minutes, okay?Okay.Wimer Aslix did not cut the connection, but paced outside of the hospital until the others showed up. The van pulled to a stop and Alta was the first one out of the doors, furious beyond furious. He was a
Francel shook his head. “No, management has finally decided to postpone our debut. But tomorrow night, we are shooting the video for “I’m Better Than You”. Oh, and Lee Sooman says he’s going to move us to a different apartment. We don’t know where yet, but he wants us in a building and an area with more security.”Bosy nodded. “Good. I’m going to go sleep for sixteen hours.”Bosy went to the bathroom. Wimer Aslix was already waiting for him, naked, in the bathtub. Bosy grinned, and striped as quickly as he could. He ducked into the shower stall to rinse most of the blood and semen off his skin.He settled with a groan into the warm water. Wimer Aslix wrapped arms around him from behind.Are you going to tell me what’s going on with your clan?No. You can jump in my head and see it. I’m too tired for anything else.I’m going to be pissed off, aren’t I?Yes.But—Miyavi refused to give them to Jun. Let’s just say I pissed him off a bit when we threw him out of my head. He gave me a clan
Not long after Bosy finished showering, a voice echoed around him, “Everyone of importance to the main chamber, please. Again. Everyone of importance to the main chamber.”He heard Yamapi whimper in frustration.Two seconds later, Jun and Yamapi were in the bathroom with him, naked. They headed to the shower.“Gosh, couldn’t he have waited until we were through, fuck.” Yamapi slammed the shower stall open.“You’ll live,” Bosy said.They both snorted.Showered and dressed, the three of them found Ryo and Shige waiting for them. Shige was still a bit loopy, with a silly grin on his face, but he wasn’t stumbling anymore.“Too much human blood for you,” Jun said.“Oh, yeah, baby,” he replied.Jun looked at Bosy. You leading, oh powerful one?No. I don’t even know where the main chamber is.Jun spun around and headed down the hall, again with Yamapi and Bosy on one side, and the other two on the other.The main chamber was through another door off the entry way. The ceiling here was even h
A set of heavy oak doors stood open and they walked into a circular, open chamber. The ceiling rose at least twenty feet over their heads. The carvings and pictures continued up and around in intricate detail. In the center of the room was a single, round dais. There were four vampires on the dais. Two of them had their lips locked together.“Ah, and here I thought you weren’t going to start without us.”One of the kissing vampires held his middle finger up at Jun.“Where’s Kei?”“Took off as soon as you registered,” Uruha said with a grin.Jun scoffed.Another vampire stood and walked over to Uruha. He was barefoot. His hair was long, ranging from blond to black in various sections. He wore a simple white vest and pants. There was a white strip of cloth over his nose. Bosy had only heard his name once. Reita, and that was when Yamapi was cursing Uruha after he’d asked about their relationship.Reita and Uruha stared at each other, talking mentally and then Reita’s gaze fell on Bosy.
“Okay, okay okay, fuck. I’ll do it. Just… god, keep the zombie away from me!”Ciel Karhillaz smiled and stepped back. He kept the flesh in his hand. Ueda pulled Herra to his feet.“You hurt him again and I’ll let Ciel Karhillaz at you first before I kill you,” Francel said, a growl in his voice.Herra snarled at them both.Ueda dropped the magic from the orb around Alta and then from Herra’s control. Herra was muttering under his breath, but he raised his hands and sent a steady stream of light at Alta Presion.Francel held his breath, but Ueda wasn’t panicking, so whatever Herra was doing was what he was supposed to do.At first, the light did the same as it had before, just disappeared, but then after a few moments, it seeped into Alta’s body, under his skin. Alta gasped, back arching, and then he fell to the bed. Still. His back rose with a shuddering breath.In the next moment, the leash was again around Herra’s neck.“You touch him again, Hee,” Ueda said, “and loyalties be damned
Clan members.What?I have nine clan members I can’t take care of, Bosy let him see the newbies.Fuck. Stupid dumb bitch Lexy.Tell me about it. She had vampires less than fifty years old trying to turn humans into rogues. I’m surprised there aren’t more newbies.And you won’t do a power transfer?No way. You’d take over the Counsel as soon as you could.Do you really think you’re that powerful?It’s not about abilities, it’s about attitude and you know it. I couldn’t take over the Counsel because I don’t want to. You want to.That’s not necessarily a bad thing.Bosy scoffed, and he felt Jun smile.Okay, so I go with you for …Moral support.Jun snorted. You’re such an emotional creature, Bosy. Do you ever think you’ll grow out of it?I hope not. You come and support me, collaborate my story about Lexy’s death, and then you get clan members. Of course, it has to be approved by Miyavi because only he can transfer them without a full power transfer.So in other words, you get what you w
“Okay.”Bosy sighed and tried to relax.========Francel stared at Alta Presion for hours, counted the breaths he took, measuring each, making sure they were stronger than the one before. He now knew how Alta Presion must have felt when he shifted early. Francel held his hand, and pressed kisses to his forehead and his palm.Alta suddenly coughed. Hard, body shaking. Francel watched him, scared. A bolt of light shot from Alta’s other hand, burning the headboard.Francel called for Ueda and ducked away from another stream.Ueda ran in, took one look at him and cursed in Japanese. He immediately threw up a shield of air around Alta as more light flew from his fingers.“Damn, Heechul.”“What’s wrong?”“He’s rejecting our light.”“And that means –““That means only the bastard that took it can give it back.”“Fuck.”“Yeah. I have him stabilized. As long as that light weave stays around him, the light has no choice but to go back into him. It will keep him alive, but … shit. I have to go f
Francel held Alta’s body close. The faerie was breathing, but each breath came as a rattle. His skin had gone cold. So very cold, and yet the edges of his wings continued to smolder, like dying charcoal. Wimer Aslix kept a hand on his arm, sending him bursts of energy. Ciel Karhillaz had his arm around Francel’s shoulders, and when Francel couldn’t look at Alta anymore, he shut his eyes and leaned against the young zombie.“Come on, Francel,” Wimer Aslix said. “We’re here.”Francel very carefully carried Alta across the courtyard. A few reporters asked some question.Ciel Karhillaz said, “He’s just sleeping. We’ve been working hard for our debut.”And then they were inside and at the elevator.Ueda and Athena, Hiel and his human, Tegoshi and another faerie, who was introduced as Nimro, were in the hallway waiting for them.“I am so glad you guys are here,” Francel said.Ueda nodded. “Now that I see him, I’m glad you called me. He needs light, fast.”“Fuck,” Nimro said.Ueda shot him a
